Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky is a chapter of
Prevent Child Abuse America dedicated to the prevention of child abuse
in all its forms and to ensure that every child in the state of
Kentucky has a happy, healthy childhood.
Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky is seeking to collaborate with Girl
Scouts Troops throughout the state of Kentucky to create educational
steps where members are given the opportunity to share public
awareness through the planting of pinwheels (the national symbol for
Prevent Child Abuse) during the month of April with the overall goal
of earning a patch for this community service.

Community Scavenger Hunt
In an effort to help families identify resources in their community,
PCAK is having a statewide Community Scavenger Hunt this April! Clues
will range from locating the local Fire Department, to downloading
PCAK resources and will all be focused on equipping families with the
resources around them.
This is a great way for your family, or families you serve, to get
out-and-about, see your community, and learn about local resources.
Clue cards will be available for download at pcaky.org/child-abuse-prevention-month mid-March.
First prize winners will receive a $100 Visa gift card, second place
will receive a $50 Visa gift card and three third place winners will
receive $25 Visa gift cards.
